(Allium canadense)

These onions never bulb up, instead remaining the size of pearl onions or tiny scallions. The entire plant is edible either raw or cooked. In the kitchen they can be used the same way as conventional green onions.

In the warmest parts of its range this species grows during the cooler months and spends the summer in a dormant state. In northern states the growing season is reversed.
